Cool set and great focus quality.

 

I would suggest to look into different composition to give a little more dynamic and drama to the shots. There are loads of good examples around for inspiration.

Thanks, it was the first use of my new macro lens, I have some ideas for better lighting and composition... Just not enough time!

Somehow I missed this thread originally. And I have questions....

@ pseudo88 -- What's the nib in the 6th photo --the nib with the dimpling and what looks like knights jousting at the base? (It's the photo between the Kaweco nib and the Waterman Ideal nib, for frame of reference).

@ Tasmith -- That Marlen Alaph nib is weird looking. I know pretty much zero about Marlen pens, so I was curious as to whether there was some particular reason (such as adding flex to the nib) in those serrated cutouts on the sides.

That pen is a Faber-Castell Ambition Pearwood.

The pen should need no introduction.

BTW, if the paper doesn't look white that's because it's an ivory Rhodia Pad.

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
